I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I have several years of training (see button at bottom of the page for the details)
What led you to this page isn’t about me, but about what I can do for you. Our space together is a safe space to discover yourself and tell your story. With no judgement, we work on helping to process what brought you to therapy and where you want to be.
My specialty is trauma and relationships with the mess that comes with it all. Trauma means it is something impactful for you. It doesn’t have to be the largest, scariest or groundbreaking to still be trauma. If it affected you, it was a trauma. No one trauma is greater or lesser than another. Trauma doesn’t knock on your door and announce itself. It shows up with symptoms, fighting, anxiety, depression, disconnection, fear and so much more.
My goal in working with you is to provide you with authentic and genuine human interaction. Sharing in all the ups and downs that come with the journey. From this point on, you are not alone. Together we can work towards inner peace to find your authentic self.
As a therapist, I use an integrative client-centred framework. What does this mean for you? It means that connecting with you is my priority. Building a foundation of safety and stabilization together, then working collaboratively with empirically proven (research baby) ways to get you towards your goals. We are a team, so your input is just as valuable. If you have a suggestion or recommendation, I want to hear it! Feedback at any time is much appreciated.
I appreciate that we need to look at the whole person including mind, body and social aspects. All are interconnected and we might as well utilize the benefits of them all. As such, you can find me outside in the nature trails in any weather! I am an avid (yet slow) runner and participate in obstacle races, trail races and that one time – a triathlon. I am a geek about gut health and use my dog as an excuse to get off my butt and move (even when I don’t want to). But don’t get me wrong, I love me some good take-out food so I don’t have to cook!
